What does an artist do when they are not working? How do they continue to grow when they are not practising their own craft? In this talk, Bruce Guthrie reveals his methodical approach to consuming arts and culture. If you are what you eat physically, then culturally we are what we read, watch, see and experience.
Requirements: Notebook & Pencil/Pen
